Fears mounted on Saturday over the growing spread of infections outside China from the new coronavirus outbreak, as the World Health Organization warned of a shrinking window to stem the spread of the deadly disease.
On the same day as China reported a sharp decrease in the number of new cases of COVID-19, South Korean health officials said Saturday that its tally had spiked to 229 new confirmed cases, bringing its total to 433.
His comments came as authorities reported 169 new cases on Sunday, raising the total to 602 with five deaths.The U.S. State Department issued a level 2 travel alert for South Korea Saturday warning that older adults and those with chronic medical conditions should consider postponing non-essential travel.It said South Korea was experiencing "sustained community transmission of COVID-19".
Numerous infections were traced to a 61-year-old woman, identified as "Patient 31" who had attended services at a church in the city, which, along with a funeral attended by several members of the same church, created what health authorities have called a "super-spreading event". Meanwhile, over 20 people linked to a church in Singapore were also found to be infected with the virus. Government officials said Sunday that 111 people have tested positive for the respiratory illness, making it Europe's worst-hit country.Of those cases, 89 are in the region of Lombardy, 17 in Veneto, two in Emilia Romagna, one in Piemonte and two in the country's capital, Rome.A 77-year-old woman who lived in Milan's Lombardy region died Saturday, the ANSA news agency reported. But new, albeit isolated findings of the coronavirus could complicate efforts to thwart it, including the Hubei government's announcement on Saturday that an elderly man took 27 days to show symptoms after infection, nearly twice the presumed 14-day incubation period.
"The number of cases are really manageable, and I hope South Korea will do everything to contain this outbreak at this early stage", he said.
People that entered into close call with those contaminated at both healthcare facilities are being kept track of, while 12 ladies and also 10 babies from the obstetrics ward have actually been bought to leave Peking University People's Hospital for their safety and security, authorities stated.
President Moon Jae-in ordered swifter action to trace down to those who recently visited the Daegu church and a hospital in another southeastern city of Cheongdo, where many virus cases were also reported in the past three days.
Reports claim that around 9,300 Shincheonji members have been put into self-isolation and will be tested. Shincheonji Church of Jesus was founded back in 1984 by Lee Man-hee, who, the followers believe is the second coming of Jesus.
County officials said on Friday that a three-day funeral was held for one of the church members three weeks ago at a hall owned by the Cheongdo hospital. It is urging them to avoid crowded places and public transportation. Italy has locked down ten towns and asked over 50,000 people to stay home-a move with echoes of China's lockdown of entire cities in Hubei province at the center of the outbreak.
In China, the number of cases outside Hubei, where millions remain under quarantine, has been generally declining, although new hotspots were found in several prisons and hospitals Friday.
Dr. Alan Drummond of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians, who works at the hospital in Perth, Ont., says he doesn't want to fearmonger, especially considering all the lessons Canada has learned from past outbreaks, but the reality of life in the ER gives him pause.
Concerns have also risen about the reliability of the official data, however, after Hubei officials changed methods of counting cases and amended their figures again.
Authorities said officials deemed responsible for the outbreaks had been fired and the government had sent a team to investigate the Shandong episode, media reported.
